Fresh off the heels of his amazing guest stint on “The Daily Show” last night, comes the news that Sir Patrick Stewart will likely reprise his role as Professor X in the upcoming X-Men sequel. I confess that when I heard a few months ago that the plot line would involve time travel, I crossed all my appendages that Stewart and McKellan would return. (Nerd Approved)
Oh, Pajibans. I know I include a lot of cute pop culture t-shirt links and some of y’all are tired of them. You’re likely shouting “Not the tees! AHHHHHHH Ahgarbulagabah my eyes! my eyes! AHHHHHHHH! AHHHHHHHhhhurgh!” (Worst Creation Tees)
I know I said yesterday that those “Breaking Bad” kids had the best Halloween costume, but, holy crap, all the props and gropes to whomever dresses as The Rubber Man from “American Horror Story.” (Vulture)

And in exciting TV casting news, Stockard Channing will be hopping on board “The Good Wife” this season. Ah, FLOTUS, I’ve missed ye. And Olivia Munn will be bringing her shark-eyed charm to “New Girl.” YES, DAMNIT, I’M EXCITED. If you’re not on board the Munn train, then you clearly didn’t watch her in “The Newsroom.” Girl has chops. (Just Jared)
I’ve got a one-two punch of nostalgia for you this afternoon. First of all, I think most of us already knew that it wasn’t Bowie himself operating those glass balls in Labyrinth, but it’s nice to see the real talent, Micheal Moschen, get his props.
And, to prepare you for the awesomeness of Rian Johnson’s Looper, here’s a fantastic supercut of “how time travel works.” The real answer is, as always, wibbily wobbily.
